The display is good in both models
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro has a 6.5-inch display, while the Note 8T is 6.3 inches. The difference is not great. Both screens are large and bright, the image on them is equally clear. The resolution is identical: 1080 x 2340 pixels (Full HD ) and IPS LCD technology. Smartphones work well, including in terms of touch sensitivity.
Note 8 Pro and Note 8T have a thin frame around the display, with a small recess at the top, in the shape of a drop. The only small advantage of the Pro model is the thinner bottom frame, but this only affects the appearance, not the usability and image quality. The front glass is identical to Gorilla Glass 5. The only issue in which the Note 8 Pro has a small advantage is the HDR technology. Although it doesn’t make as much of an impression on an IPS LCD screen as it does on an AMOLED screen, but in some movies it has quite an interesting effect.
Redmi Note 8 vs Note 8T. which is better to choose?
Xiaomi originally rolled out the Redmi Note 8, which was well received by the public. Two months later an improved smartphone appeared. Redmi Note 8T which has lost one of its main drawbacks. The design of the phones are identical and almost impossible to distinguish one from the other.

Redmi Note 8T is designed for global market, so it’s equipped with NFC-chip, which lets you pay in stores via Google Pay. This is probably the main difference between the Redmi Note 8T and the regular Redmi Note 8.
Note: The average price tag of a regular Redmi Note 8 is 11.The Redmi Note 8T model will cost at least 15,000, more often. 16,000. That is, for the possibility to pay with the phone you will have to pay about 4000 extra, despite the fact that the cost of the NFC-chip is a penny.
The Redmi Note 8T also comes with an 18W charger, which will allow you to charge your phone faster. The regular Note 8 comes with a 10W adapter, and to save time on charging, you’ll have to buy a Quick Charge adapter separately on average.
Information about the navigation and location technologies supported by the device.
Positioning is carried out by different satellite navigation systems, tracing the autonomous geo-spatial location of the device which supports them. The most often used satellite navigation systems. is GPS and GLONASS. There are also non-satellite mobile localization technologies like EOTD, Enhanced 911, GSM Cell ID.
Wi-Fi. is a technology that provides wireless communication to transmit data over short distances between different devices.
Wi-Fi communication between devices is carried out through the IEEE 802.11. Some devices have the ability to serve as a Wi-Fi Hotspot, providing Internet access to other devices. Wi-Fi Direct (Wi-Fi P2P). is another useful standard that allows devices to communicate with each other without the need for a wireless access point (WAP).
Xiaomi or Samsung: which phone is better?
South Korean company Samsung smartphones have long established themselves on the market as creators of high-quality equipment. For a long time they were the leaders in sales, but today the smartphone market is developing and other manufacturers enter the battle for leadership.
So, in 2010, Samsung has a competitor. a Chinese company Xiaomi. The manufacturer creates a good smartphone that can easily compete with Samsung models in the same price category.
ICTV Facts decided to find out which phone is better to buy. Samsung or Xiaomi, and compared popular models in one price category.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 VS Redmi Note 8T. В чем отличия? Что выбрать?
When comparing the two smartphones, you can notice the key differences between the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro 8 and the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE.
New budget model Redmi Note 8T (Redmi Note 8T) from Xiaomi with NFC support is already on sale
When it was reported that Xiaomi was preparing to release the Redmi Note 8T, fans of the Chinese brand hoped that the new smartphone would be an alternative to the Redmi Note 8 Pro, because not everyone wants to buy a device with a MediaTek processor. But the manufacturer has other plans for this model.
Screen The screen size of the Redmi Note 8 Pro is 6.53″, which is 0.23″ larger than its opponent. In addition, the frame of the Redmi Note 8T is noticeably wider. The display resolution is absolutely identical, but the Redmi Note 8 Pro wins this round thanks to its brightness. 640 Nits vs. 500 Nits.
Redmi 9 is better in terms of battery life Redmi Note 8T is cooler in terms of photography, plus it has a screen with Gorilla Glass 5, quick charging out of the box processors and screens give or take equal NFC, tray for 2 SIM and memory cards are in both phones
Review of inexpensive smartphone Redmi Note 8T
Over the past year, the company Xiaomi, as usual, released a large number of different smartphones, confused users renaming and repositioning of lines and promised to review pricing for their top devices that were not slow to affect the Mi Note 10 Pro, which appeared in the official Russian retail for unprecedented for Xiaomi 45 thousand, and later on the flagship Mi 10.
But still, no matter how the manufacturer tries to reverse the situation, in the minds of millions of users, Xiaomi products are firmly associated with an affordable price. And it’s a good thing it’s still fair: the Redmi Note 8T is just one of the very affordable smartphones, whose price, moreover, has managed to fall noticeably in a few months. What is capable of this inexpensive mobile device with five cameras and support for NFC, consider in this review.

Appearance and usability
Redmi Note 8T did not get expensive design, this smartphone with a very simple body geometry, plastic side frame and completely flat front and back panels looks even for its money, does not look more expensive than its level.
In your hand the smartphone even with such a chubby and simple body weighing 200 grams would hold well due to the wide side edges, which here, thank God, did not become narrower. However, the smartphone is still very slippery, because the plastic side frame is smooth and glossy. Why is it glossy is completely incomprehensible. The sides should have been made matt, non-marking and non-slip.
REDMI NOTE 8 VS REDMI NOTE 8T. В ЧЕМ РАЗНИЦА И КАКОЙ ЛУЧШЕ?
The four-camera unit at the back protrudes noticeably beyond the surface, so the smartphone does not lie on the table steadily. Fingerprint scanner is located here, on the back, there are no complaints about it.
The front camera is hidden in the teardrop-shaped cutout in the screen. It takes up very little space, but there are users who find even such a small cutout unnerving. But that the device does not have a notification light, it’s a huge minus. Especially considering the IPS screen.
The side buttons are tactilely indistinguishable, but conveniently located on one side, have a nice bouncy stroke, no complaints to them in general.
The design flaws are partially compensated for by the three-slot tray, which can simultaneously hold two Nano-SIM cards and a microSD card. Supports hot swapping cards.
Speaker, microphone, USB Type-C connector and 3.5mm headphone jack are installed in the bottom face.
On the top end are an additional microphone and IR transmitter. Among the pre-installed programs is Mi remote control to emulate remote control.
Redmi Note 8T is available in three colors: white, blue and black (Moonlight White, Starscape Blue, Moonshadow Grey). Full protection against dust and moisture the smartphone body did not get.
Redmi Note 8T is equipped with a 6.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2340×1080, covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The physical size is 67×146 mm, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 409 ppi dot density. The width of the frame around the screen is 4 mm on the sides, 5 mm at the top and 9 mm at the bottom, the frame for today is wide.
The front surface of the screen is made in the form of a glass plate with a mirror-smooth surface, resistant to scratches. Judging by the reflection of objects, the anti-glare properties of the screen are better than those of the Google Nexus 7 (2013) screen (hereinafter just Nexus 7). For clarity, here’s a picture of the white surface reflected in the off screen (Nexus 7 on the left, Redmi Note 8T on the right, further distinguish them by size):
The screen in the Redmi Note 8T is noticeably darker (brightness according to photos 104 vs. 114 in the Nexus 7). The doubling of reflected objects in the screen Redmi Note 8T is very weak, this indicates that between the layers of the screen (more specifically between the outer glass and the surface of the LCD) there is no air gap (the screen type OGS One Glass Solution). Due to a smaller number of borders (glass/air type) with widely differing refractive indices such screens look better in conditions of intensive external illumination, but their repair in case of cracked external glass is much more expensive, as it is necessary to change the whole screen. On the outer surface of the screen there is a special oleophobic (grease-repellent) coating (better than the Nexus 7), so fingerprints are much easier to remove, and appear with less speed than in the case of conventional glass.
When manually controlling brightness and displaying a white field in full screen maximum brightness was about 470 cd/m² under normal conditions and increases to 630 cd/m in very bright light². The maximum brightness is very high and, given the excellent anti-glare properties, the readability of the screen even on a sunny day outdoors should be good. Minimum brightness value of 1 cd/m², So in total darkness the brightness can be reduced to a comfortable value. There is an automatic brightness control by a light sensor (it is located to the right of the front speaker cutout, very close to the top edge of the front panel). In automatic mode, when ambient light conditions change, the brightness of the screen both increases and decreases. The operation of this function depends on the position of the brightness adjustment slider: the user can try to set the desired brightness level under the current conditions. If not interfered with, the auto brightness function reduces the brightness to 7.5 cd/m in total darkness² (low), in an artificially lighted office environment (approximately 550 lux) sets at 100 cd/m² (normal), and conventionally in direct sunlight brightness reaches 630 cd/m² (at most, this is how it should be). We increased the brightness slightly in total darkness and got 15, 120 and 630 cd/m for the three conditions above², We are satisfied with this result. It turns out that the auto brightness adjustment function works adequately and allows the user to adjust its performance to individual requirements. At any brightness level, there is no meaningful backlight modulation, so there is no screen flicker either.
This smartphone uses a matrix type IPS. The microphotos show the typical IPS sub-pixel structure:
For comparison, you can see a gallery of microphotographs of screens used in mobile equipment.
The screen has good viewing angles without significant color shift, even at large deviations of the view from perpendicular to the screen and without color inversion. For comparison, here are photos showing the same images on the Redmi Note 8T and Nexus 7 screens, with the brightness of the screens initially set to around 200 cd/m², and the color balance on the camera is forcibly switched to 6500 K.
Note the good uniformity of brightness and color tone of the white field.
The colors on the Redmi Note 8T screen have a slightly higher saturation than natural, the color balance of the Nexus 7 and the screen under test are different. The photo is obtained in the case of the Auto profile in the screen settings:
In the case of the Saturation profile there is no noticeable difference from the Auto profile, and when you select the Standard profile the color saturation is slightly less and the color balance changes slightly:
Now at an angle of about 45 degrees to the plane and side of the screen:
You can see that the colors have not changed much in both screens, but in the Redmi Note 8T the contrast has decreased to a greater extent due to the strong highlighting of black.
Brightness at an angle of the screens decreased (at least 5 times, based on the difference in shutter speed), and decreased about equally. The black box is heavily highlighted when you tilt it diagonally, but remains conventionally neutral gray. The photos below show this (the brightness of the white areas in the perpendicular plane of the screens is the same!):
When viewed perpendicularly, the black field uniformity is excellent:
Contrast (approximately in the center of the screen) is high at about 1160:1. The response time for black-white-black transition is 21.5 ms (10 ms incl. 11.5 ms off.). It takes 38 ms for the gray scale to go from 25% to 75% (based on the numerical value of the color) and back. A 32-point gamma curve at regular intervals based on the numerical value of the grayscale shows no collapse in either light or shadow. The approximating power-law function is 2.18, close to the standard value of 2.2. The real gamma curve deviates slightly from the power curve:
This unit has dynamic backlighting brightness adjustment with unobvious dependence on time and on the nature of the displayed image. As a result, the obtained dependence of brightness on the hue (gamma-curve) may not correspond to the gamma-curve of the static image, because measurements were carried out with successive output of shades of gray almost the entire screen. For this reason, a number of tests determining the contrast and response time, comparing the black backlight at angles we conducted (however, as always) with the output of special patterns with constant average brightness, rather than monochrome fields in the whole screen. In general, such a non-disabling brightness correction does nothing but harm, because the constant change of screen brightness at least can cause some discomfort.
The color gamut in the case of the Auto profile is slightly wider than sRGB:
If you select the Standard profile, the coverage is pushed to the sRGB boundaries:
The spectra show (profile Auto) that the matrix light filters are moderately blending the components to each other:
At the same time the green and red hump is relatively well separated, which leads to some widening of color coverage.
The default color temperature is quite high, about 8500 K. However, in this device when the Auto profile is selected, it is possible to correct the color balance by adjusting the hue with a dot on the color wheel, or by selecting the preset options. In addition, the correction is done automatically when the Normal profile is selected.
The result in the latter case is good (see “Standard” on page 48). graphs below), as the color temperature becomes close to the standard 6500 K and the deviation from the Spectra Absolute Black Body (ΔThe result in the latter case is good (see E) for most of the greyscale below 10, which is not bad for a consumer device. In doing so, the color temperature and ΔE changes little from shade to shade, which has a positive effect on the visual evaluation of color balance. (The darkest areas of the grayscale can be disregarded, because the color balance is not important there, and the error of color characteristic measurements at low brightness is large.)
In the settings, you can reduce the intensity of the blue component:
In principle, bright light can disturb the circadian rhythm (see the diagrams below). But everything is solved by adjusting brightness to a comfortable level, and it makes absolutely no sense to distort the color balance, reducing the contribution of blue.
To summarize: The screen has a very high maximum brightness (630 cd/m²) and has excellent anti-reflective properties, so the device without any problems can be used outdoors even on a summer sunny day. In total darkness, the brightness can be lowered to a comfortable level (down to 1 cd/m)²). It is also possible to use the mode with automatic brightness adjustment, which works adequately. The advantages of the screen should include the presence of effective oleophobic coating, the lack of air gap in the layers of the screen and visible flicker, high contrast and excellent black field uniformity, as well as close to sRGB color gamut and good color balance (after selecting the desired profile). To disadvantages low stability of black to a deviation of a sight from a perpendicular to a plane of the screen. Taking into account the importance of the characteristics for this class of devices screen quality can be considered high.
Redmi Note 8T the owner of the so-called quad-camera, as they call smartphones with four rear modules. However, two modules (with the same characteristics of 2 megapixels, 1/5,0″, 1.75 microns, f/2.4) are used only for depth of scene and macro photography, so, in fact, there are only two main working modules the main one and the wide-angle one, without the long-focus one.
In the settings are manual mode, auto-HDR, panoramic, portrait, night, as well as slo-mo mode. The built-in ability to save pictures in RAW is not available, but you can use third-party software for this.
The main camera has a 48-megapixel module Sony IMX586 (1/2,0″, 0.8 µm) and an f/1.8 lens with a viewing angle of 79.4. It has PDAF phase autofocus, but no optical stabilization. By default, the camera shoots at 12MP with a binning function (intelligently combining 4 pixels into 1), and the maximum resolution mode of 48MP is very conveniently enabled right from the mode carousel without having to go into the settings for that. Smartphones with 48-megapixel cameras we now see very often, the experience is accumulated, and it must be said that the Redmi Note 8T is sort of not the worst among its classmates. Small details in the 48-megapixel photos are not visible, they are all the time blurred, a little fuzzy. And a direct comparison with the 12 megapixel shots shows that the 48 megapixel shots do not have more detail. There’s no reason to shoot at this resolution either, as it only adds weight to the image.
Choosing between the Redmi Note 8 Pro or 8T in terms of display size, it is obvious that the difference in this indicator is not significant at all. It is 6.53 versus 6.3 inches, respectively. In addition, in both cases installed IPS-matrixes FullHD resolution and aspect ratio of 19.5:9. They behave well in the sun, maintaining a decent level of readability. In order to protect the vision system, blue blocking technology has been implemented. There are also the most sought-after options for adjusting the screen, including adjusting the light temperature, selecting night mode, etc.
The shape of the teardrop-shaped cutout has not changed, so it remains the same in both phones. However, Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T was decided to deprive the LED indicator, which was a rather controversial innovation.
Redmi Note 8 product specifications
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 was offered to customers on September 23, 2019 in several colors: black, blue and white. The smartphone has four built-in cameras, of which:
This camera produces high quality portraits, mesmerizing city panoramas, and professional videos for work regardless of the time of day or weather conditions.
Constructed with the latest technology, this cell phone can last at least 24 hours on a single charge. It can be inserted two SIM cards, which allows you to combine business and personal contacts. Now you do not need to buy two phones to always stay in touch.
